Hey guys
i just got a new TV for home
its a Samsung
i already have a Sony TV
the Sony is 2 years old
so what i want to do is attach the two TVs to my desktop
and compare them side by side for a couple of days
while playing the same content so that i can reach a proper conclusion
the better one will stay with me whereas the other will go in the guest room where it is hardly viewed

please help me set these two displays up
my hardware is as follows:
i5 4690K
MSI Z97 Gaming 7
MSI GTX 970

Are you planning on comparing them side by side at the same time? you can hook one up with HDMI and the other Use display port or DVI if the TV allows that connection.

No the 970 has 1 hdmi, 1 DP, 2 Dual link DVI one I and one E.

What is the model of the TV?

"With the new LEDs and flat screens, DVI HDMI has a special purpose. It's for devices that don't transmit sound through the HDMI output, such as a security system recorder, they have a separate audio output, usually rca. So your TV will either have an analog left/right input, or a 3.5mm jack input for this DVI HDMI input. That input also does sound through the HDMI, like any other HDMI input."

Is what I looked up so that TV may not have an actual DVI port.
